There will be no house league or competitive soccer in the city this spring or summer.
The board of Brockville Soccer announced on Friday that the 2020 season has been cancelled because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The “difficult decision” was made following “careful consideration and discussion” by the board on several occasions, the organization indicated in a letter to parents and players.
“It should be noted that this decision did not come lightly,” stated the board, which added that the safety of all is the most important thing for the club.
It was a unanimous decision but difficult because of the board’s desire to provide youth recreational and competitive soccer opportunities, according to president Shannon Geraghty.
The season normally starts at the end of May and ends in early to mid-August.
Registration had been suspended early this spring, and the board indicated on April 22 that it was planning to make its decision on Friday.
